First of all let me explain that there are several Roquefort cheese caves that can be visited in Roquefort-sur-Soulzon and it can be tricky to find the Roquefort Société Cave! Plenty of signs offering free visits attempt to divert you from the Roquefort Société Cave, but I would definitely say that the 5 Euros charged are well worth it! Second,... More

Really enjoyed our visit to the Roquefort caves - my French wasn't really up to following the tour guide fully but my other half is more fluent and was able to translate the salient points. The moving model of the land on which Roquefort sits and the inevitable 'sons et lumiere' that the French love were a bit pointless but... More

A must if you are in the are - a very comprehensive tour with translations provided in English. All aspects of making the cheese and storing it were expertly explained. Not a great Roquefort fan but the tasting at the end of the tour opened my eyes to other types of Roquefort.

Not worth the money for international visitors. You are given a sheet with the commentrary on it and you follow the group around and try to keep up. only go if you're SUPER keen on smelly cheeses!

Having a passable degree of everyday French, we have discovered in the past that we have struggled a little through other types of tours , so although the other caves are free, we decided to embark on this tour because ot was reputed to have an English guide. Considering we paid the same for the tour as fluent French speakers,... More
